Deconstructing GH: Port Charles is full of liars
The cloud is a mysterious server in the sky.
Rants and raves for the week of August 10 – 14:
Last week “General Hospital” was on fire, this week a fire in Port Charles would have been more exciting than what we got. Let’s discuss!
Marry me you liar.
The Jake storyline is the epitome of what needs to change on this show with the new writers. Not only has his amnesia dragged out way too long, now Liz is getting rewarded with a marriage proposal from him. There is too much darkness and not enough happy pay-offs for the viewers. The most recent pay-off was little Jake’s return, and that was basically another reward for Liz!
Move in with me you liar.
If Hayden is lying about her memory loss, then she is doing an amazing job. It would appear though based on Friday’s show that she’s not faking it. The scenes between her and Nikolas were one of the highlights this week, especially when she tried to put on the good Catholic schoolgirl act with him. These two were always electric together on screen, so I look forward to more of those sparks.
Which liar killed Silas?
In last week’s Deconstructing GH I discussed that while Silas’ death was unfortunate, it had led to a good old fashion murder mystery. While the story started off great, it’s now hit pointless and useless territory with all the “it could have happened this way” scenarios we had to watch. Ava being haunted by ghost Silas seems to be nothing more than a red herring to make the viewers think she did it. I hate that Ava once again has the upper hand with the photo of Nina, and that nobody thought to challenge her and point out that it also puts her at the scene of the crime. Ava and Nina’s catfight over the phone was at least good for a laugh, as was Ava explaining “the cloud” to a clueless Nina. Nina’s scenes at Shadybrook with the catatonic player were also one of the highlights of the week.
I was glad to see Kiki finally start questioning her father’s murder and the fact that Franco had no real motive to do it. Seeing Morgan squirm and try and prove her wrong is really making me think he did it. If he did kill Silas, it’s probably the only interesting thing he’s done. Part of me used to feel sorry for Morgan, as he was always jealous of Michael the golden boy. Now I don’t feel bad for him at all.
The mayor is a liar.
I actually have enjoyed the show using Scott more, especially in scenes with Franco. Yet again though, this is a great example of the lack of payoffs. Lomax should have been exposed months ago, yet is still mayor. She’s also rewarded that scum Ric with Scott’s job as the DA. I hope Scott takes both of them down, and maybe Nikolas along with them. It’s time for Felicia to get the job the voters gave her.
Julian may be the only one who is not a liar!
We get it, Julian’s being framed for attacking Sonny’s organization, so how long will they keep dragging this out? At this point either throw us a bone or a twist. I really would like to see Julian be innocent for once, because if he’s still in the game then it will kill his relationship with Alexis. More importantly though, I want to see that smug look wiped of Jordan’s face for thinking she has it all figured out.
I'm already a married liar.
Friday's cliffhanger revealed who Brad is married to, and it's none other than Rosalie! I never saw that one coming. Clearly this is part of her huge secret as well, which I'm eager to find out. All we know right now is that it wasn't a marriage for love, at least not on Brad's part. I'm still betting that this all ties in with Brad's family the Wus somehow.
As always these are simply my thoughts on the show. You are encouraged to leave your own in the comments.
